Stargaze at French skies from a ‘bubble bed’

Stargaze or meteor watch from a ‘bubble bed’... 

The annual nuits des étoiles has star-related events across France from August 2-4 (see more here).

Parisians are invited to admire the sky from Tour Montparnasse’s 59th floor while Toulouse’s Cité de l’Espace celebrates the first moon landing, 50 years ago.

The annual Perseids meteor shower will peak on August 12.

A novel way to watch is from a ‘bubble’ with a transparent roof floating on a lake in Finistère.

Elodie Roué, pictured above, who hires out the pod, said: “We loved going out with our children to look at the stars. We created the bubble so we didn’t get cold or bitten by insects.”
